The Greatest Study of Western Civilization Ever Written

Published in National Review Online on March 20, 2020


And now for something completely different. You won’t find this book on those other quarantine reading lists. You won’t even find this nearly two-century-old great book in print. (Although you might be able to order it used or through a reprint service.) But you will be able to read this book for free on the Web (here). I’m talking about Francois Guizot’s The History of Civilization in Europe, a great but largely forgotten account of the development of civilization in the West.
